Finding Your Productivity and Focus in a Hyper-Interrupted, e-Distracted World
E-mail. Texts. Interruptions. Phone Calls. Project Transitions. Office Clutter. Social and Other Media. Smart Phones and Apps. Even Family and Friends. These common distractions make it almost impossible to get anything done, especially for those of us now “working from home”. It seems like there is always SOMETHING getting in the way of what you really need to do. But with some forethought and effective strategies, as well as some discipline, it is possible to find your focus, even in a hyper-distracted world. We'll have a fun time sharing "game plan" ideas for getting and keeping your distractions under control, and finding critical "focused productivity" time every day, leading to both performance but also clarity of mind and purpose. And, this program is now "audience flexed" -- the speaker will poll the audience at the start of the program to find out YOUR biggest distractions, and will customize the content accordingly.

Buddy to Boss
One day, they are your co-workers and buddies – the people you socialize and take coffee breaks with. Now, you’re their boss. Suddenly, you find yourself questioning what you should and shouldn’t say to your former co-workers. Your job is now about them and no longer all about you. The challenge is not only in taking on the demands of a new, elevated role and the skills and knowledge required, but it is also in making the emotional and mental transition to that of manager.

Team Building
Do you lead a team or merely a workgroup? What’s the difference, you ask? A workgroup is a collection of people sharing space while pursuing individual task accomplishment. A team, on the other hand, is a group of individuals working together to achieve a clear and common purpose. High performing teams make better decisions, serve customers better and faster, and effectively resolve problems without intervention. Your efforts to create and nurture strong teams enhance employees’ job satisfaction and increase retention as well. During this class you will: • Establish a framework to ensure a successful team • Learn to manage a team through its stages of development • Understand situations that undermine team development • Coach your team to deal with conflict in a positive way • Review the importance of setting clear and common goals toward measurable results

The Healthy Workplace
